I have been thinking about getting into the video field for a while and while I have been playing with various software packages and low-end consumer video equipment I feel like I am ready to stop playing and make the move. This will be my new career. I realize what this entails and this is not my one source of info, but would like to hear other members suggestions/opinions (from experience or otherwise) as to what a one man video production house needs as far as equipment. So far all I have is my 1ghz pb w/superdrive and a 22" apple display. I will be starting off making some documentaries and wedding videos I would imagine will help pay the bills. I have no illusions, but having been unemployed for about a year now I have nothing to lose. I will be funding the equipment purchases through menial work and tech support. I hope to be able to fund this in under $15000 but will come up with what I have to.
